Hyper Light Drifter: a 2D Action RPG in the vein of the best 8-bit and 16-bit classics

Explore a beautiful, vast and ruined world riddled with unknown dangers and lost technologies. Inspired by nightmares and dreams alike


“It plays like the best parts of A Link to the Past and Diablo, evolved: lightning fast combat, more mobility, an array of tactical options, more numerous and intelligent enemies, and a larger world with a twisted past to do it all in.”

This game is absolutely gorgeous. To be honest the art style alone sold me on Hyper Light Drifter. The games mechanics have been described as a blend between the best of Link to the Past and Diablo. Even with the successful kickstarter being finished, it’s not to late to get in on Hyper Light Drifter. Over at the Heart Machine latecomers can choose from a number of the reward tiers, and for $15, ensure themselves a copy come the release of the game. Hyper Light Drifter will be available on PC, Mac, Linux, Wii U, PS4, and Vita.
